romney both very quick to talk about these job numbers. president obama saying, you know, this -- we still have got a way to go, but it proves we are going in the right direction and we can't go back to the policies of the past. >> obama: today's news certainly is not an excuse to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has become too far to turn back now. >> bill: indeed. the president in a campaign event this california talked moyer about these numbers. >> obama: the unemployment rate has fallen down to 7.8% the lowest since i took office. [ cheers ] >> bill: the president can take credit for 4.3 million jobs created in this country since february 2010, 4.1 million jobs were lost in the last year of the bush presidency so president obama as in fact made up for all of the jobs lost under george w. bush -- made up for all of the jobs losted under president bush and adds jobs on top of that. there is no doubt about it that the president can take credit for creating jobs where mitt romney never did. the headline in
and their spouses are making a strong push in the state. mitt romney and his wife ann both made multiple campaign stops there yesterday. the first lady's event opens to on the public 2:45 this afternoon. >> president obama will try to appeal to young voters again today. he'll visit ohio state university in columbus. he's been to more than 30 college campuses this year alone. this will be his fourth visit to a campus in ohio in recent weeks. the president flies to the battleground state from california where a series of fund-raisers helped generate millions of dollars for his campaign. >>> republicans are focusing on another battleground state, north carolina. senator john mccain and house speaker john boehner are some of the gop leaders who will campaign for mitt romney in the tar heel state. the republican presidential nominee will visit north carolina later in the week. he campaigned in virginia yesterday. romney criticized president obama's foreign policy. he also vowed to be tougher on iran and help rebel forces in syria. foreign policy will be the focus of the next presidential debate which
from women in both the romney and obama camps. there is one thing the obama and romney campaigns can agree on. women are a key to victory. until last week's debate, the gender gap strongly favored president obama. he had a double digit lead with women. now as the poll are tightening, the advantage has begun to disappear. one reason both sides are trying to energize their female supporters by turning to the candidates' spouses. ann romney was in rif mond yesterday. this is the first lady's second time in virginia in a month. >> i think she he will braces those values that women embrace and care about. and i think she definitely fires the women up. >> reporter: obama supporters waiting in line before the event say they trust the president to preserve their rights. >> equal pay for equal work. >> i have a daughter. it took a long time for women to gain what we have as far as rights. and it would be taking a giant step backward to vote in romney. i mean, he is against the right for a woman to have control over her body. >> reporter: but romney supporters says reproductive rights and othe
romney will. >> on both debates you get around town from doormen to millionaires, you get around quite a bit. and you as well. with people's reactions when asked about the debates, was it on substance or on style. >> on style was the first item on each one of the person's responses. they didn't talk about whether or not there was anything to do with medicare. they didn't talk about foreign policy. they talked about style, how he looked and delivered. >> each time we talked about this three or four time, me and the mayor, we wondered whether they realized there were split screen, that being obama. it matters a lot how you appear to people. not only good, bad or indifferent, but the truth of the matter people want to like the person they are voting for and think the person likes them. quite frankly the president didn't do well at that and i don't think biden did, either. they want to know if you can work together with people, not smear at them. >> biden's duty and responsibility was a wee bit different. >> that is true. >> the fate of the democratic party was so down. biden need
'm barack obama, and i approve this message. [ female announcer ] he says... president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. [ female announcer ] but this is what the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? infringement on our lives.s s le chaigingsuch an...here too.. the how dare they step into my life that way. it's none of their business. he's trying to restrict us, again. he's taking us backwards. george allen is the last thing we need in washington. anncr: the democratic senatorial campaign committee is... responsible for the content of this advertising. . >>> hitting the grocery store on the way home from work took on a new meaning. billboards will allow you to start shopping on the spot. laura evans is here to explain why you -- where y
shows a surge for mitt romney. he is up now by five points over president obama in the midwest where ohio and iowa could determine the winner in november. both candidates happen to be campaigning in those states today. steve handelsman joins us now from the hill with more on a shift in strategy for romney. steve? >> reporter: thanks, jim. just a few weeks ago, mitt romney had all but written ohio off. now in that critical swing state in florida and virginia, in iowa, he is pushing back hard. mitt romney came to dusty iowa on his way to ohio with new confidence that he can win those battleground states. and a new willingness to open up personally. today about glen dougherty, a navy s.e.a.l. romney met at a party. >> you can imagine how i felt when i found out he was one of the two form he s.e.a.l.s killed in bell gazay on september 11th. and it touched me, obviously. >> reporter: after the debate in denver, romney soared to a lead over president obama nationally among likely voters. in the pugh poll and the gallup survey. but they are seeing his numbers go down. >> definitely he got a
governor romney is going to win ohio this year. host: both of them have been there numerous times to the president just 15 times this year, 30 times since he has taken office. tell me about ohio. caller: ohio is a class a purple state, well balanced between democrats and republicans, a microcosm of the country in the sense that you have blue caller workers, you have -- however, the state is older, probably more caucasian, a little white r. it has really been hit by the economic downturn, especially heavy industry. both sides think they have a real shot at winning the state. i think in the early going, the obama campaign scored well on their class warfare argument. that is one of the staples of the obama campaign, "you are not doing well because this guy in his career is doing too well." now i think the public is beginning to understand that it is the bad economic policies of this administration that is causing everybody to do less well than they should. so i think now mitt romney and paul ryan are starting to pick up. host: what kind of ground game do you need to pick up ohio? gue
inside "the war room," i'm jennifer grandholm. both president obama and governor romney are pulling out all of the stops to win colorado's nine electoral votes. the latest poll from american research group has romney leading 50% to 46%. last month the same survey had obama leading. so here is david sirota who is author of "back to our future," and cohost of a radio show. and he really knows what people are saying and things. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: president obama was doing great until the debate in denver. what did you folks do to our president? >> i think this race was always fluid out here in colorado. there is a huge number of latino voters in this state, and mitt romney is doing terribly among latino voters. i think this will be definitely a turnout election. it is going to be a 2008 turnout or '2010 turnout, and what does that actually look like, and it's really anybody's guess right now. and i would say this, one thing that i think democrats can be -- can feel good about is that senator michael bennett was
. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists in the united states. pioneers and advocates. for more than two decades maria and george have informed million of hispanics through the popular evening newscast. their brand of journalism is characterized not only by subjective and perspectives, but also by a high degree of social advocacy. in the last three
have serious problems with what mitt romney did and i think both of them would say he just doesn't get it. he doesn't understand the stewardship responsibilities of the president of the nights. his speech, if you think about it, was a speech designed for the 1950s when america was six times larger than the next biggest economy, could do all things in all places. he attributed george marshall in this speech, who was a great man in my view, it was interesting he spent so much time on israel in his speech today but it was george marshall who was -- >> i think he's appealing to the evangelicals on that front. i think it's pure politics. >> what's interesting about the speech is there's a lot of talk about strength and resolve, but there's really nothing showing us what he would do. he kind of implies we'll go to war and we'll do all these things, but he's kind of a chicken hawk in his actual policies, too. what are we going to do about iran? we'll get tough with sanctions. that's what obama is doing. what are we going to do is syria? we're going it try to find those people who we can help
in iowa, right now mitt romney is standing both for it and against it. and at this point, in a presidential campaign, that is not tenable, not for long. also, second point, while trying to get away with this idea that he's not in favor of legislation to restrict abortion rights, despite his record to the contrary, it should be noted that mitt romney picked as his vice presidential nominee an anti-abortion absolutist named paul ryan, a man who has co-sponsored 38 anti-abortion measures in congress. who today outside an ice cream shop in florida said there is zero daylight between his and mitt romney's ideas on this subject. what paul ryan believes on abortion mitt romney believes to. right down to redefining rape in co-sponsorship with todd akin? is that included? mr. romney said today under duress that the romney/ryan position is the romney/ryan position, there's no difference between them. and he said you'll hear more about it at the vice presidential debate tomorrow. i bet you will. joining us now is steve kornacki, co-host of "the cycle." thanks for being here. >> than
on key turning points in both candidates' political careers such as mitt romney's disastrous perform nents 1994 debate with ted kennedy and president obama's loss to bobby rush in 2000. >> the debate was watched by over 3 million people. as many people as watched a super bowl in massachusetts. romney had these expectations that he was going to win up to here, and suddenly kennedy's up to here and romney's here. the race is over. >> in the end voters decided to stick with bobby rush by a huge, huge, huge margin. it was a very bruising loss for him. >> actress stacy dash, best known nor role in the '90s film "clueless" is endorsing mitt romney. she said, quote, vote for romney, the only choice for your future. those are the things we just thought you should know. [ male announcer ] unitedhealthcare wants to know "what do you want from a medicare plan?" i just want a company that helps me get the most out of my healthcare. i want it to be simple. one plan. one card to carry. i want lower copays... and i want my drugs covered. [ male announcer ] say "hello" to more of what you want with
's four deficits are the four largest in u.s. history. >> reporter: with mitt romney's debate performance now showing up in the polls, it is putting even more importance on the next two debates to come. both presidential debates touched down in ohio tuesday night with mitt romney campaigning near youngstown and president obama at the ohio state university in columbus. the vice presidential candidates meanwhile continue to prepare for their first debate thursday night in kentucky. in the newsroom, tom fitzgerald, fox 5 news. >>> how often do you check your facebook or twitter account. >> too much no some people. ahead in about 15 minutes, the social networking may be far more tempting than you may think. first, let's talk to tucker barnes. >> all right, we've got some fog and low clouds across the region. cool temperatures too. guess what. sunshine is back and with it, mild temperatures. i'll have all the details on the weather forecast. julie wright will have your getting around traffic coming up right after the break. alright let's break it down. mom, pop it. ♪ two inches apart, becky.
room. the role of the vice president has changed considerably, and i would give credit to both romney and obama for picking a vice presidential nominee that not only could help them get elected but could help them govern. i think these are both, to a degree, responsible selections in that respect. i think no matter who wins, we will see either ryan for biden -- or biden play a significant role over the next four years. >> we are previewing the upcoming debate in danville, kentucky, and throwing in some vice-presidential trivia all along the way. let me share with you one of the mamas from 2010 during the height of the health-care debate, a meeting that took place at blair house across the street from the white house, and comments by then congressman ryan on the health care bill and the vice-president. >> the bill has 10 years of tax increases, about $500 billion, with 10 years of medicare cuts, about $500 billion, to pay for six years of spending. what is the true 10-year cost of this bill? in 10 years, that is $2.3 trillion. it does a couple of other things -- it takes $52 billion in
. >> what does paul ryan need to do to keep the momentum going that mitt romney accelerated last week? >> both these candidates are really smart guys that know washington, know how buckets work. -- budgets work. that's what paul ryan's specialty is. he has to show his expertise. this is a great opportunity for him to introduce himself to the american people again and to show take he's somebody that we can credibly believe is one heart beat away frbing president -- from being president. >> we don't vote for vice president. we do vote for them but you know what i'm saying. that's not why you go to the polls and elect the top of the ticket. does the debate really mean that much in the long run? >> typically these debates are memorable for gaffes and faults. >> joe biden has provided us many. >> but he's a great debater. he was fantastic four years ago and walk add fine line against a candidate that was considered to be a lightweight. so he had to show that he was one, a heavy which he was but not crush her. he did both of those things. he backed up the president's positions. it was a lit
voters but romney leads among the all important likely voters. it's why both pull out the big guns on the trail calling in bill clinton and chris christie, while the running mates are holed up in debate prep. they face off thursday in kentucky. one month out, and we start today with "washington post" political columnist dana millback. >> hi, s.e. >> hi. let's start with with the pugh poll. it puts hit ahead likely voters and registered voters and he's made big gains among women voters and middle class voters. is it about one debate night? >> it's time for obama to panic. we did this a couple of weeks ago when the polls were the other way, and then it was time for romney to panic. it's probably not time for anybody to panic. this race is now what it was weeks ago, months ago, and that's a fairly close race it will on election day. it's decided by two, three percentage points. we've seen the bounces and swings. this one is going in romney's direction. it appears if you look at the battleground states, it still favors obama. nothing has fundamentally changed. if things keep move innin
to gallup. the landscape is changing quickly. both campaigns are trying to take advantage. mitt romney may have had more spring in his step yesterday as he spoke to the virginia military institute. he went after what has been president obama's strong suit in many polls, foreign policy. and he spoke about last month's attack on the u.s. consulate in libya in a world he says is now more dangerous. >> this latest assault can be blamed on a video insulting islam, despite the administration's attempts to convince us of that for so long. no, the administration has conceded these were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> reporter: the president spent much of his day preaching to the converted at california fundraisers. it helped pad his campaign coffers. he reminded his faithful that the race is extremely tight and right around the corner. >> so i need you in this election, the next 29 days. we cannot afford to be complacent and we cannot afford to be cynics. we have to look back at the progress we've made and that should give us confidence. >> reporter: but that confidence may have been shaken
to address both of them and win the white house. >> would mitt romney take us to war against iran? >> i don't know, because i don't know what his policy is, ed. i think his policy, from what i've heard and talked to some of his advisers about, is almost identical with president obama's. but in order to establish a gap between them, he seems to be saying things that would indicate, yes, he would take us to war, yet again, in western asia. >> romney talked about military spending today. here's how he's going to spend tax dollars. here it is. >> i'll restore our navy to the size needed to fulfill our missions by building 15 ships per year, including three submarines. i will implement effective military defenses. >> where's he getting the money for this? and is all that necessary? >> that's a good question. we did a study at the center for american progress and the institute for policy studies, former assistant secretary of defense was on the board with me. we showed how if you cut national security spending, ed, not just the pentagon, but everything across the board, va, does you can cut a tri
. i share this hope. but hope san strategy. >> the new mitt romney does not even flinch when he makes a blatantly false accusation. >> i'll champion free trade and restore it as a critical element of our strategy. both in the middle east and across the world. the president has not signed one new free trade agreement in the past four years. i'll reverse that failure. >> romney's correct, the president has not signed one new trade agreement. in fact, the president of the united states has signed three new trade agreements. deit last year with bipartisan support from congress. the new mitt romney hopes you forgot about those trade agreements. just like he hopes you forgot about his own position on foreign aid. >> i'll make further reforms no our foreign assistance to create sentence for good governance, free enterprise and free trade. in the middle east and beyond. rally friends to match our generosity to theirs. >> previously mitt romney took his cues from foreign aid from rick perry. >> one of the things we have to do with our foreign aid commitments, the ongoing foreign aid commitment
be the most daunting writing he has to defend both his record and mitt romney's and we have seen over the past few weeks ryan's record and budget plan have die verged of mitt romney. vice president biden needs to have a decisive win to stem the loss of enthusiasm and get undecided voters on board and do it facing headlines like this. daily beast. biden's mission impossible, stop obama free fall with ryan debate. the hill wrote high stakes for wild card biden. politico had this one. eat crow and pray for joe. bring in nbc news political news editor and we focused on the headlines of vice president joe biden. let's play what mitt romney said on cnn about his running mate. >> i don't know how paul will deal with this debate. obviously, the vice president has done, i don't know, 15 or 20 debates during his lifetime. experienced debater. i think this is paul's first debate. i may be wrong. he may have done something in high school. i don't know. >> he may have done something in high school, i don't know. get to know your running mate. they should spend some time together. >> paul ryan may look youn
good about the fact that despite what was truly a lopsided performance, both in terms of reality and certainly in terms of the media portrayal of the performance, that romney has closed the gap, but still if the election were held today, if you're looking at the swing state polls, the president would still probably win. >> yeah. nate silver tweeted ta saying people getting way too excited about these little moves in polls. i think he has the obama chance of victory at somewhere around 75%, which is down from 84% just a few days ago. but still, a 75% chance of winning. thank you both very much for joining me. >> thanks lawrence. >> coming up, mitt romney is now bi-curious. what does that mean for paul ryan in his debate? just how bi can paul ryan go? >>> and big bird's most passionate defender will join us later which will give me a chance to have a mini "west wing" reunion. and a member of the science commit me who thinks science is aloif from the pit of hell. and he thinks he's a scientist. also tonight steve mor continue -- martin decided to do his political commercial, one of
debate both men under pressure governor romney building momentum after the first presidential dough bait. >> 50% said biden won, 31% said ryan won and 19% called it a tie. also in that poll 55% said biden is someone they can relate to. 21 points higher than before the debate. ryan's relatability went up 17 points to 48% and 85% said biden is knowledgeable about the issues and 75% said the same thing about paul ryan. jan crawford is at the debate site in danville, kentucky. jan, good morning. >> good morning, norah. good morning charlie. good morning to those of you in the west. the president tried to explain that lackluster performance at the debate of being too polite. the vice president surely can't say that about his performance last night. he came out of the block, never stopped. to the point republicans are now saying he interrupted paul ryan 82 times. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of mularkey. >> the vice president appeared to take the president's advice. joe just needs to be joe. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look, here is the deal. >> biden's gi
weeks doing what he intended to do rather than playing defense. i do know that focus groups, both romney campaign ran and the obama campaign ran showed these remarks really alienated independent voters and even weak republicans. which indicates to me that this comes up again in the debate and advertising, it will remind people. they forgot about it or responding to the debate. host: let's go to phone calls. barb, democratic caller you're on the air. caller: i would like to say that romneyexpressed his real feeling about the 47%. it cannot be ignored. also understand that he signed grover norquist pledge. if he did that, he cannot represent 100% of the population because if you say that you're going to ignore the situation that the country is in, you cannot say that you unequivocally ignore taxes and to get income to support the country. with that, he could not represent me and the middle class and or poor people. host: we'll leave it there. john in north carolina, tweets in this though. the 53% are not in the least offended by the comment which was by and large true. guest: everyone has
thank you both for being with us. peter feaver, to you first. we heard governor romney today criticize the president broadly for not rejecting strongly enough america's influence in the world. yet when it came to specifics, we didn't hear many details. so let me just ask you about a couple of different places in the world. what about when it comes to iran. what exactly governor romney be doing differently right now? >> well, this is the criticism that the obama campaign has leveled at the romney campaign for not being detailed and specific enough. when it comes to iran, the president hasn't laid out a red line that he said clearly he would enforce. when asked to be precise about what it means for iran not to possess a nuclear weapon, the articulation of the red line, he's been vague and says he doesn't want to parse it further. i think there's a certain element of ambiguity about where you would draw the line precisely so as to avoid being trapped by it. but the other point to make is that president obama has had several years. during those years the options that he took or the choices
on october 22. thank you both for being with us. >> woodruff: you can watch all of mitt romney's speech at v.m.i. today on our web site. >> brown: still to come on the newshour, a deadly meningitis outbreak; the stem cell breakthrough; rothenburg, page, and kohut on the campaign; and salman rushdie on life under a death sentence. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivan: the investigation into the killing of the u.s. ambassador to libya took new turns today. cbs and abc news reported american officials in libya had asked for more security personnel, but the state department refused. meanwhile, libyan officials said president obama's top counterterror advisor, john brennan, will be in libya tomorrow to discuss the investigation. a warning from congress today: u.s. companies should stop doing business with china's top two telecommunications firms, huawei technologies and z.t.e. the house intelligence committee reported both have close ties to the government of china. it said using their components in u.s. computer networks could let them steal trade secrets o
